Angelina Jolie Further Discusses Her New Netflix Movie in New Interview

Angelina Jolie Pitt is further opening up about her new film project First They Killed My Father: A Daughter of Cambodia Remembers, which will debut on Netflix.

“As Maddox and I prepare the film we will be side by side learning about his country. He is turning 14 next week and this is a very important time for him to understand who he is. He is my son but he is also a son of Cambodia. This is the time for our family to understand all that that means to him and to us. My desire to tell this story in the most truthful and accurate way possible will be my tribute to the strength and dignity of all Cambodian people,” the 40-year-old actress and director wrote to the AP during an email interview. Maddox will be involved in the production of the film.

Maddox will be on set every day after school and involved behind the scenes. And yes, Maddox is already involved in the Foundation and will take over my role when he is older,” Angelina added. “The intent of this project is not to revisit the horrors of the war but to bring to the screen characters that people around the world will empathize with, and to help other people to learn about Cambodia. What is special about this particular story is that it is told from the perspective of a 5-year-old child, and is based on a child’s emotional experience of war. It sheds light not only on the experience of children during the genocide in Cambodia but of all children who endure war.”

The movie is set to hit Netflix in late 2016.
